One can say, he sealed the night. But is that what is making this a hip hop year?

Everyone is saying this is hip hop year. The question that pops to mind is: "What makes 2018 our hip hop year?" We are already in the middle of the year and what is it that we have missed that is making this a hip hop year?

Are we seeing hip hop artistes start up a movement? Is there a certain culture in music coming up we are missing out? Is there a surge of hip hop music this year that has finally given the genre its soul?

Or could it be because, recently, three or so so-called hip hop artistes slated each other with their own "Who Is Who" song challenge done on Nas' 1999 "Hate Me Now". If that is the case, then I have missed out on this so-called hip hop year.

But it was interesting catching this fast-rising rapper, Fefe Bussi, on the Tuesday evening of the Bell Jamz Swangz All Star Tour launch held at The Square Bar and Restaurant, industrial area, Kampala.

The evening was launching a musical tour that will see artistes like Bussi himself, Sheebah Karungi, Bebe Cool, Nwagi and A Pass embark on a countrywide tour come June 15. The night attracted a number local artistes like Navio, Vampino, Racheal K, Vinka, The Mith, Rabadaba and Winnie Nwagi.

But it was when the night's emcee, Brian Mackenzie tasked artistes Da Agent, Bussi and Jim Nola, the protagonists of the "Who Is Who" challenge, to take to stage and their bits of the "Who Is Who" that the night really lit up. Fine, Bell beers and food had been consumed but when the music started, the night got alive.

First was Da Agent, then Jim Nola before Bussi stole the night. He beat them by going freestyle as the other two had sung what everyone had heard before.

His ability to recite lyrics off the top of his head, using attendees as his subject in a free-flowing rap is what earned him a deafening applause from attendees, including fellow rappers.

One can say, he sealed the night. But is that what is making this a hip hop year?
